Madonnas and Miracles: a Domestic Devotions exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum, 7 March - 4 June 2017

last modified Feb 21, 2017 11:01 AM

Madonnas and Miracles exposes a hidden world of religious devotion in the Italian Renaissance home. Bringing together a wealth of objects, including jewellery, ceramics, books, sculptures and paintings, the exhibition invites us into a domestic sphere that was charged with spiritual significance. Drawing materials from across the Italian peninsula, and juxtaposing fine works of art with humble and everyday artefacts, Madonnas and Miracles offers a vivid encounter with Renaissance spirituality and domesticity. Transforming our understanding of a period that is often cast as intensely worldly and secular, the exhibition will also offer its audiences a new appreciation of the relationship between the material and the divine.
